Hello and thank you for using justanswer.com
Did you file MFJ or MFS ( married filing separate)
married filing deperate
If you file MFS your tax is generally higher
You can't take most of the credit like EIC or education credits
I've been seperated for a little over a year. Do I have any other option?
Are you legally separate?
Your filing status is single if, on the last day of the year, you are unmarried or legally separated from your spouse under a divorce or separate maintenance decree, and you do not qualify for another filing status.
If you have a dependent child you may qualify for the head of household.
I am not legally separated. Therefore the calculations are correct? DO I need to change my W-4 to zero then?
The best thing will be for you to change your deduction to zero
Will that make much difference for next year?
Let me know if you need more help and remember to click ACCEPT if I have answered yourq uestion
Yes, because right now you have one exemption on your W4
and since you make over $50,000 your tax brake is different
ok thank you.
